  2. Just be warn, there are new CPU fixes that are not in windows 7, not sure about 8.
  3. There is also an update for windows 7 that installs a nag screen saying “Your PC uses a processor that isn’t supported on this version of Windows”.

    I'm running windows7 on ryzen 7 1700 and am just installing "security only" updates manually. but to be clear, I don't recommend that, just saying.

    Your motherboard does have PS/2 inputs for both keyboard and mouse, so you should be ok installing windows 7 should you decide to give it a go.
  4. Do you need to install security updates or can you just get an antivirus program? Also i have a ps/2 keyboard and mouse so if i did install windows how can i install the usb drivers?
  5. go with win 10 for ryzen and security update are made for the os and does not have anything related to virus softwares .
  6. no you still need windows security updates.

    Have a read of the link posted above, it explains that the problem is getting usb keyboards and mice to work without drivers. if you have PS/2 keyboard and mouse, you don't have the problem.
  7. I've read the above link and i have a ps/2 keyboard but my main keyboard is usb. Is there a youtube video on how to install windows 7 or 8 on ryzen?
